is there some chips like this or i have to run prime for 24hours lol.
Try 12 hours~ 2 hours was not revealing for me. I was about to do 4.8 at 1.34v easy~ but every time I tried to do 12 hours for the Sandy Stable run, it'd crash around hour 9... sometimes hour 10. Tried it three times~ almost quit. 1.36v was the right number for me. The whole point of this thread is to get rid of chinks in your overclock.
Had I just done 4-5 hours~ I would have called it a day awhile ago, but it wouldn't have been my 'true' number. Maybe true enough for gaming, but I wouldn't depend on a huge render or important task on an overclock if it wasn't bullet proof. :3
BTW your chip is probably very good as it is~ I'm damn sure. Just make sure to try for a real number. Make a goal, like 4.8ghz~ and then try to get into the club by following the instructions on the first post (Munaim is a stickler for the RealTemp time, make sure you load it at the start. It's silly~ since Prime95 says the time already but just do it~ lol)
If you can get into the club at 4.8, write down your settings and check out your temps. If your temps are golden~ go higher! :3
For me, my goal was going as high as possible without using Overvoltage on Enable, because I need Sleep mode and that setting makes Sleep not work. 4.8 was that number~ to hit 5.0 I need to enable that feature and that bug is freaking annoying. I hope they find a way to fix it or some kind of work around.Edited by Inverse - 7/1/11 at 8:30am
